This is a partnership between Worldviews Project and Hidden Story Productions to produce youth created films. As the 1st phase of Worldviews Project Jr.High students created films about local heroes who are creating innovative solutions to common global issues and featured them in a Film Festival!
This video was created by three Jr. High students as part of Reel World Youth Documentaries and produced by Worldviews Project & Hidden Story Productions. It is the first one to be featured within Inspirational Mondays, but look for more from my amazing students to come. CAWST is making their community better and providing hope by providing water to communities worldwide. You can get involved by visiting www.cawst.org

To help advertise our film festival and to show what youth are doing in Calgary to make it a better place, we submitted this short film to 3 Things for Calgary. 3 Things for Calgary is an initiative of Mayor Nenshi to engage Calgarians by encouraging them to find 3 ways they can make their city better.

Awesome Calgary is an amazing organization that supports people in starting up new concepts. As I have applied for more and more grants and asked people to sponsor what I am doing, I have realized just how important groups like Awesome Calgary and Calgary Foundation are in helping start new innovations. Without these people who are willing to take a risk on creative solutions we will only end up with more of the same ideas. I couldn’t have done Worldviews Project without these groups. I encourage you to get involved with an Awesome Foundation near you or start your own. What an excellent way to create positive impact in your community.
